    Hey guys,
    About 8 years ago an anime show called "Outlaw Star" appeared on TV. The show had some nice designs and all but I really didn't get into them that much. Then today I was perusing one of the current collectors pistol magazines when I saw a "noble pistol" that reminded me of the show. The real pistol looked markedly similar to the ones on the anime, though still distinctly different, so I thought I'd see if anyone knows if the fictional pistol was based off of any real pistol.

    Thanks a bunch all,
    Hman

    Don't know for sure, but, years ago a friend owned a Ruger .22 with a 6" barrel. NOT stock as the barrel had a full length silencer built into it and I'd swear it looks exactly like this one.
    P.S. It Shot G-r-e-a-t!

    well all I know is that based on those pictures that guy was never properly trained in gun safety. His finger is always in the trigger guard, even when striking a pose. tsk tsk tsk. :)

    I just started watching some anime with my roomates and the ones I've seen and read about apparently go for accuracy with weapons- even those based in the future. Though with art like that it's never going to be 100%, I wouldn't be surprised at all if it was in fact based on something real. Maybe look the show up on IMDB/Wiki or such, sometimes the trivia will say.

    That would've been a Wildey in Death Wish 3. Not an AutoMag. ;)
    Would've been either .45WinMag or .475 Wildey (I think it was called a .475 in the movie...it's been a few years). Wildey didn't start chambering it's pistol for .44AutoMag until the late-90s or early 2000s I believe.

    Clint Eastwood carried an AMT AutoMag in Sudden Impact. I spose he needed something flashier than the Model 29 for #4 in the Dirty Harry series. It was the "Miami Vice" era ya know. :D

    That anime thing looks to me kinda like any one of the autos already mentioned above...looks kinda like that plastic S&W .22 too. Or maybe an AMT AutoMagII with it's funky, wanna-be-bigbore counter-bored muzzle.

    The firearm in question reminds me of a Astra mod.600 or 400 9mm

    You were dead on to the Pistol I saw in the magazine: the Jan Surplus Firearms. The "Noble's Gun" was actually the Astra 400, though I couldn't remember the full name of it for the life of me.

    As for Mosin Nagant Fan, I think you were thinking of this other one. (Which just happens to be the only gun ANYONE talks about when I search)

    Aw, hell, you could make something pretty close to that wet dream starting with a lugar. With a buncha chopping a Browining could fill the bill based upon the grip angle. But why not work from a clean sheet of paper ? >MW
